In this book the author draws upon contemporary records for his complete description of the history of the world's first gas company, which eventually became the world's largest gas company, from 1812 when it obtained its Charter, to 1949 when the company's assests were transferred to the North Thames Gas Board under the Gas Act 1948. It is the story of men rather than of machines and is enhanced by the reproduction of portraits of the Company's governors and other illustrations showing the activities of the Company from the earliest period to the present day.
